[audio]Various Artists - nsh100
Yes, Nishi has reached its 100th release. To celebrate, we asked some past, present and future artists to submit tracks for a compilation album. The result is almost 3 hours of music spanning dozens of genres, styles and moods (not to mention several continents). Between the sublime washes from Pocka and Ambient Field, the dark glitch-pop of Samarah and John Tennant, and the relentless pounding of Elektro Punc and Sascha Müller, and everything in between, there really should be something for ev...

The man behind the Stasisfield netlabel gives us his "possible soundtrack" for Walter M. Miller, Jr's science fiction novel. These fine-grained soundscapes are sure to evoke vivid mental images of a post-apocalyptic world, whether you're familiar with the book or not. Charting the fall, rise and fall of mankind.

[audio]Blue T-Shirt - SOLO/0705 [nsh080] - Blue T-Shirt
A month in 36 minutes: one track for each day of July 2005. Blue T-Shirt cooks up a smorgasbord of electronic styles and moods. Track 5 has barely begun when it dissolves into swathes of reverb; track 12 could be the soundtrack to the world's shortest film; track 10 is a chaotic flurry of filthy drums and slurred synths; the final track is a sprawling slab of ambience weighing in at a lengthy 4:56...

[audio]Ambient Field - Sci-Fi [nsh106] - Ambient Field
Patrick Wiklacz continues to indulge his (and our) fascinations with classic science fiction and analog synthesizers, at the intersection of the past and the future. This score for an imaginary sci-fi movie incorporates all manner of otherworldly noises in alien configurations, synthesized and saturated, chilling despite their warmth.

[audio]Zirkulardynamik - Live [nsh105] - Zirkulardynamik
Sometimes we like to be soothed by abstract soundscapes and intricate rhythms. For the other times, Berlin-based elektrockers Zirkulardynamik are here to dial up some serious aggression. This live recording captures the full force of their feedback-heavy take on industrial techno/rock.

[audio]Dynamic Interplay - Untitled [NSH047] - Dynamic Interplay
Dynamic Interplay (the alter-ego of M.A.S. Productions, whose work can be found on Nishi as well) was kind enough to share this astoundingly good recording of a live performance he recently did. Full of vitality and beautiful intricacies, these tracks prove for an extremely satisfying listen that proves electronic music is not exclusively the domain of laptop-based clicks and pops.

The CDs were sold out long ago, and Severed Digit no longer exists, but we've given these tracks a new home. Ten tracks ranging from breakcore/hip-hop to ambient chimes and drones.

Vancouver's Pino The Frog is practically one of the family. For his third Nishi release, he treats us to more of his unique brand of digital obfuscation. Melodies and rhythms shine almost imperceptibly through layers of arbitrary complexity. This may well be the last you hear from Pino The Frog, at least under that alias, so don't miss it.

Seamlessly fusing elements of ambient and drum 'n' bass, this 4-track EP from the Netherlands is packed full of frantic breaks and instantly familiar synth hooks, but never hesitates to make room for blissful washes and pads.

[audio]Kabana - Front EP [nsh081] - Kabana
The title track is a study in relentless pads, cyclic bass, clicky minimal rhythms, and the odd ethereal swoosh. On the flipside, Cardiogram is a slightly dubbier affair, bringing the heartbeat-like bass to the foreground and underpinning it with clicks and sporadic pads. Just the kind of understated melodic ambience we know you love so much, with the perfect balance between progression and repetition.
